Media Relations

old capitol at night


Office of Strategic Communication staff are ready to help connect media with sources, provide information about administrative and academic matters, and share the University of Iowa story. The OSC team can make the newsgathering process easier by providing access to campus buildings and newsmakers.

 The quickest and easiest way to connect is to email, which reaches four team members to ensure a timely response. 

As a state institution, journalists have access to open, public areas across campus. However, journalists are encouraged to contact OSC staff before conducting interviews or filming footage. The media must contact our office before entering residence halls or classrooms, unless a specific faculty member has granted a journalist permission to visit their classroom.
